Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

Cheers,
Catster






Why does my kitten attack my ancles when i am on the stairs?

Every time i go upstairs my kitten will fallow me (he usually fallows me every where) and he starts biting my ankles. He doesnt usually do this but he is starting 2 and i am wondering why.

    This is kitten behavior, he is playing with you. He is using your ankles as toys. When he does this gently pick him up and shooo him away, telling him no. In time he will stop. Make sure he has real cat toys to play with and some interactive toys for you and him to play together, like a teaser wand.
